If such hits as "The Hangover" suggested raunchy buddy humor was a men-only club, meet the women of director Paul Feig's truly funny comedy hit. Also the film's co-writer, Kristen Wiig ("Saturday Night Live") stars as a reluctant maid of honor trying to negotiate her way through the offbeat wedding party without suffering too many bruises.
The picture's show stealer is a riotously earthy Melissa McCarthy ("Mike & Molly"). Fellow "SNL" veteran Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne ("Damages") and - in her final screen role - Jill Clayburgh also appear. DVD extras: audio commentary by Wiig, Rudolph, McCarthy, Feig, co-writer Annie Mumolo and co-stars Wendi McClendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper; deleted, extended and alternate scenes. *** (R and unrated versions: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
